Post-It Notes Holder

Hi All,

Due to many requests for instructions of the holder posted the other day, I’ve managed to do one.  So here goes –

Instructions for Post-It Note Holder

Supplies Required
? Cardboard
? Cardstock – Whisper White, Real Red
? DSP – Pink Flamingo
? Ink – Real Red
? Stamp Set – Great Friend
? Punches – Oval, Scallop Oval
? Ribbon – Striped Grosgrain
? Accessories – Dazzling Diamonds, 2-Way Glue, Uni-Signo Gel Pen
? Post-It Notes – 7.5cm x 7.5cm
1. Cut cardboard 9cm wide x 20cm long. I allowed a 2cm fold for the top as I put 2 post-it notes together
2. Score cardboard at 9cm & 11cm
3. Cut desired cardstock – Real Red – 9cm wide x 20cm long
4. Score cardstock at 9cm & 11cm
5. Cut a 26cm piece of ribbon in half – Striped Grosgrain Real Red
6. Tape the 2 pieces of ribbon down onto the inside of the 2cm fold at the top of your holder, ensuring they are in the middle
7. Adhere Real Red Cardstock to the side of the cardboard that you wish to be the inside. This covers the ends of your ribbon
8. Cut DSP – Pink Flamingo – 9cm wide x 20cm long
9. Score at 9cm & 11cm
10. Adhere DSP to the outside of the cardboard
11. Adhere the post-it notes to the bottom of the inside of the holder. These should fit nice & snug up against the 2cm fold. Adhere the bottom of the post-it notes to the bottom of the holder. When I have used one lot of post-it notes, I just adhere another lot to the bottom
12. Tie ribbon into a bow, trim
13. Embellish as desired
I used the Butterfly from “Great Friend”
1. Stamp butterfly in Real Red onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock & cut out
2. Using 2-Way Glue on the butterfly, sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds over the butterfly
3. Adhere to the cover of the post-it holder
4. Using Real Red & Whisper White, stamp “For You”
5. Punch the words, using Oval Punch
6. Punch piece of Real Red Cardstock, using the Scallop Oval Punch
7. Adhere the Whisper White to the Real Red
8. Using Uni-Signo Gel Pen, place small dots around the outside of the scallop oval
I save the cardboard which comes as the backing for the DSP – never throw it out! This is what I use as backing for a lot of my little holders, projects, etc. It makes them a little bit stronger!
If this is not clear, please let me know & I will run through it with you.
